A Kansas doctor has a crucial court hearing this week in her fight to regain her medical license after state regulators revoked it over her referrals of young patients for late-term abortions.

Attorneys for both Dr. Ann Kristin Neuhaus and the State Board of Healing Arts expect Friday's hearing in Shawnee County District Court to be the final one before Judge Franklin Theis (TICE) rules.

Neuhaus is appealing the board's revocation of her license in July 2012. Neuhaus provided second opinions that the late Dr. George Tiller needed under Kansas law to perform some late-term abortions at his Wichita clinic.

The board concluded that Neuhaus performed inadequate mental health exams in 2003 on 11 patients, aged 10 to 18.

Neuhaus has argued her exams met accepted standards of care.
